A 500 year old temple between Daocheng and Shangri La valley.
30% of the original survives (rest was destroyed in 1966-76)
You can get an idea of the size of the original temple at this site.
Why would anyone destroy something as beautiful and historically significant as this?
I guess the chinese intended to turn something "historically significant"
into something "currently insignificant". They can never destroy an institution
as important as Tibetan culture and Tibetan Buddhism. The modern-day chinese will certainly
earn their place in world history - among the most infamous, senselessly brutal,
characterized by unbridled greed and ultimately culturally insignificant.
Have a look at this!!!
